    Ok, all the hospital case management experts, I just landed a job as a case manager at a hospital in North Florida. What can I expect in this position. I have been doing home health for the past two years. Give me all the pros and cons. Thanks

    You can apply to NAS Jax by going onto USAJOBS and typing in Jacksonville,FL or go to one of the contractors there which is TCMPcareers they supply nurses for military hospitals and right now I believe they need ED nurses. Let me just say that as far as I can remember military hospitals have always done rotating shifts, one week you will be on days and the next week is on nights, that is just the way they roll. But if that floats your boat GO FOR IT. Good Luck

    I just arrived in Jacksonville, about three weeks ago and so far I have had calls from potential employers, the only problem............I do not have my license in hand yet. Apparently I was told by the state board that it can take up to four weeks to receive the license and one of the main questions that the employers ask me when we are talking is do I have my license yet and when I tell them that I have applied and I do not have it yet they tell me to call back when I have it. The other issue is my original state the one that starts with an O and it is not Ohio does not work with the Nursys verification system so I had to mail in verification. Any way with all that being said, it seems to be jobs just having that license in hand says a lot.

    Hi hollyrn08, apparently I am in the same boat as you are. Right now I have been searching for jobs in Jax, preferably on the Naval base since about March, putting in applications for every job that is avalable, online, emailing, faxing and mailing. I received one call back from a usajobs post for a outpatient clinic in jax. You can try the VA website for jobs, ACPOL, USAJOBS is a great one also. Good Luck, We are in Oklahoma right not and will be moving to JAX in three weeks for good, but I am scared because I have not found a job yet.

    Thanks, it looks like they pay about the same as Oklahoma, but there is no way I can stay here any longer. At least in Florida there are things that the state can offer such as nice weather and activities.

    I would say that I am sorry that you didn't pass and had a bad experience, but well you just didn't cut the mustard there did you. We can all blame others for not succeeding in certain things, but ultimately you decide whether you will succeed or not. Maybe you should go back and read my first post because obviously you are upset and did not completely read it. I clearly stated that I was not on the traditional track. Now Kramer is rated in the top 10% of nursing schools and I do not know about OSU-OKC maybe they are too. The facts are though you did not make it at Kramer that does not mean that the original person who posted this thread will not. We are all nurses or will be very soon, and with that I want to say good luck to you at OSU-OKC and it is wonderful that you are having success there.

    WOW it sounds like you may have received some bad info, now I will admit that I am in the RN-BSn program and I graduate this MAY. Whatever you were told is so far from the truth, the instructors are absolutely wonderful. Now I am not sure whether you are a traditional student or not because I am not familiar with that plan. As far as the instructors and courses for RN-BSN they do whatever they can to help us to succeed. No it is not easy, it is hard work. Do your work and you will not have any problems. This school is one of the best schools to go to for your nursing education. YES it is expensive it is a private school, and worth every penny. kEEP ME POSTED ON WHAT SCHOOL YOU DECIDE TO ATTEND AND WHY, if you don't mind. Once again it is a great school.



    NOTHING WORTH HAVING IS EASY.

    leslie :-D and mskate like this.

    Oklet me give you a little low down on military facility if that is where you actually are. I once worked in a military ob-gyn clinic and they were all military nurses and doctors except for a few civil service nurse aides. Number one if you are civilian and they are military then that is a problem for them. You know they can be reallllll cruel and want to treat you like you are military even though you aren't. I do not know if you were a direct hire or if you were already in the system, but a lot of those positions are filled by people who know people. and maybe that position was one that they wanted filled by a FRIEND OF THEIRS. The bottom line do not take any crap for anyone and if you are civill service then do that lateral transfer and go work with some people with some since and people who were taught to treat others with respect don't keep putting up with that crap. Another thing just to let you know if you are civil service and you manager and another nurse are walking in exam rooms and beratting you then that is illegal if you are in a union because any grievances that your boss has with you she has to have you union rep with you when it is discussed. Honey go hook up with one of those older workers there that has been in the system for a long time, they will school you real good on what you can do and the options that you have. Don't let some nuts run you from your calling.

    Please don't take this the wrong way, I lived in Fayetteville NC from 1997-2003 and as a LPN I was making $20-$22/hour, now I am not sure about Tulsa but I live in Lawton right now and RN (which I am now) in hospitals make about $23/hr fresh out of school. Trust me Oklahoma is wayyyyy lower than NC

    They have an agreement with the state BON to help with the nursing shortage and if you can afford it, It is worth every dime. i am paying out of my pocket and if you are an RN then we definitely get paid somewhere near an amount that is affordable here. I mean I remember $9.50 an hour as an LPN, compared to the amount that I get now. If you don't have kids and a lot of debt then it is manageable. it is a great school and the education here so far has opened m eyes and changed my thinking habits. I love it and Spring 2009 is my second sememster, I am so glad that I went through with this program
